Luxury holidays in Haut Marais

Also known as the 3 me, the Haut Marais is a fashionable rive droite enclave with a flourishing arts scene and a charmingly bohemian lean. Once considered nondescript, the area now buzzes with creative energy, home to some of Paris’s most forward-thinking artists and designers. The tradition of the atelier is alive and kicking here, with some houses producing bespoke goods that can’t be had anywhere else in the world. This translates to a lively café culture and excellent people watching – if you’re looking for the 21st-century equivalent to the city’s Twenties salons, you’re in the right place.

When to go

Paris is a year-round destination, although many residents take their holidays in August, when many businesses shut up shop.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Most international flights land at Charles de Gaulle Airport; regional flights arrive into Paris Orly. Buses and trains run regularly from the airports to the city centre at a fraction of the cost of taxis.
  • Trains

    Skip the airports and arrive by Eurostar if you’re coming from London, Amsterdam or Brussels.
  • Automobiles

    Leave driving to the professionals – after all, it feels far more Parisian to stroll beside the Seine or explore the alleys of Saint-Germain-des-Prés on foot.
